Founded in 2003 as an experimental orchestral laboratory by Angel Gil-Ordonez and Joseph Horowitz, PostClassical Ensemble’s tagline—“More than an Orchestra”—suggests its mission. PCE programming is thematic and cross-disciplinary, and maintains links to universities. Many PCE programs incorporate film, dance, or theatre. The ensemble has presented more than 100 events in the DC area, and also toured festival programmes to New York, Seattle, and Chicago. At the Brooklyn Academy of Music, it presented the sold-out American stage première of Falla’s El Corregidor y la Molinera. For Naxos, it has created two DVDs presenting three classic American documentaries—The Plow that Broke the Plains / The River [2.110521] and The City [2.110231]—with newly recorded soundtracks (“revelatory”—Philip Kennicott in the Washington Post). Its most recent Naxos CD, “Dvořák and America,” [8.559777] features the world première recording of a “Hiawatha Melodrama” combining text by Longfellow with music by Dvořák; it was named one of the best CDs of the year by Minnesota Public Radio.
